I find the Gilbert Arenas gun story fascinating. After seven and a half years of living in the UK, where gun ownership is almost unheard of, I am still getting used to how widespread gun ownership is here.

People had to have special permission to own guns in the UK, and ownership was hugely restricted. And generally, people wouldn’t bring them to work, like Arenas did.

The NBA Commissioner is outraged. But I am amazed that Arenas didn’t seem to think that bringing a firearm to Washington Wizards’ locker room was a bad idea until recently — and then, only, because he was suspended.
